I am a Falcon Foundation recipient that attends Marion Military Institute as my prep school. Being at a Army-oriented school has changed my perspective on which branch of military I want to commission in. Also, after trying out for the club Swamp Fox, which is a small, Army Ranger-like club that tests you physically and mentally, and teaches you small group battle drills and other Army things, I have changed my mind in wanting to attend the Air Force Academy to wanting to attend West Point. I like the satisfaction that comes with working with fellow soldiers more than I would like working with machines and computers. I want to be a leader of men, and I know that by going to Air Force Academy, I will not have many chances to work with soldiers like I would if I went to West Point. Before I ask questions about West Point, I have a few questions regarding the Air Force Academy: 1: How many cadets at the Air Force Academy want to join Air Force Special Tactics, such as combat controller and Air Force pararescuemen? 2: How many spots are there available to become a Special Tactics officer? Now, for West Point: 1: Being a Falcon Scholar, does that make it very hard for me to receive an appointment to West Point? 2: For any former Falcon Scholars, has there ever been a Falcon Scholar that ends up changing his mind about going to the Air Force Academy? If so, did he or she receive an appointment to any other Service Academy? Now, don't get me wrong, if I receive an appointment to the Air Force Academy and not to West Point, I will definitely accept that appointment. My final goal is to still become an officer in the U.S. military. I would much rather become an Army officer that leads soldiers on the ground than a pilot or a communications officer in the Air Force. But, I will take what is given to me. Any suggestions or comments are greatly appreciated.
